Patsy Cline's memory lives on!

Post by Lance » Thu Apr 12, 2018 11:10 pm

I just recently prepared a piano at a theater that is presenting three live shows on Patsy Cline, whose voice was incredible for the music she sang. Another great artist who died s tragically at age 30 in an air crash. It wasn't until I saw the film "Sweet Dreams" [with Jessica Lange, 1985] that I learned about Patsy. One wonders if she had studied opera, given her range and ability to express so well, if we might have had another opera star along the way.

I feel pretty much the same about the voice of Roy Orbison whose upper register was amazing.

So much for my delving into other than the Baroque, Classical and Romantic periods!

I grew up hearing Patsy Cline on the radio. She was a master at her style. I often had high school students who worked hard to do some Patsy songs.
